General description

1-Methyl-3-nitroguanidine (MNG) is formed as intermediate during the production of hydroxyl radical during 1-methyl-3-nitro-1-nitrosoguanidine (MNNG) - induced gastric cancer in the xanthine oxidase system. MNG has been referred by the U.S. Air Force Armament Laboratory for use in explosive formulations. MNG is formed during nucleophilic attack by H2O2 on the nitroso nitrogen of MNNG. MNG is non-carcinogenic analog of N-methyl-N′-nitro-N-nitrosoguanidine (direct-acting carcinogen).


1-Methyl-3-nitroguanidine (N-methyl-N′-nitroguanidine) was used in the synthesis of clothianidin hapten.

Currently, N-methyl-N'-nitroguanidine (MNG) is being considered by the U.S. Air Force Armament Laboratory for use in explosive formulations. A mammalian toxicity profile has been performed which includes the analysis of chemical impurities and an assessment of the potential for the

We have examined the mechanism of 1-methyl-3-nitro-1-nitrosoguanidine (MNNG)-induced gastric cancer with respect to the production of hydroxyl free radical (OH). Nucleophilic attack by H2O2 on the nitroso group of MNNG produces 1-methyl-3-nitroguanidine (MNG) and the intermediate peroxynitric acid (ONOOH), which
